a very happy father's day to all of you out there. god bless you. have a great weekend and mr. hannity is up next. ♪ >> welcome to "hannity" and this is a fox news report. fox news has confirmed a disturbing report from "the daily caller" a list containing a name of republican lawmakers wass f foud on the gunman was targeting republican lawmakers earlier this week for assassination. newt gingrich, michelle malkin, patrick j buchanan, mike myers will all be here with reaction. but first, the unelected fourth branch of government, the deep state is trying to overturn the results of november's election and throw this president out of office. how did a bunch of unelected bureaucrats get so much power, feel so emboldened that they think they can undermine a duly elected president of the united statesy?
plus, after this week's left-wing assassination attempt on revoking lawmakers, the coming together kumbaya moment it is nothing more than an illusion. it. is a farce to hide the less true intentions. we will expose of this hypocrisy in tonight's very important opening monologue. the unelected fourth branch of government is now being aided and abetted by the destroyed trunk media. all in a massive effort to damage and destroy president trump. this week alone, we have seen unprecedented and potentially criminal leaks from the deep state to liberal "washington post" ." the liberal smear machine is masquerading as a news outlet and they are reporting new sighting of course anonymous sources that the special counsel is now investigating the president for possible obstruction of justice and that robert mueller is also looking into jared kushner's finances and business dealings. how is it possible that they
leakan information almost every single day without any fear of consequences?he and they are wrong so often. president trump responding to that report today, tweeting quote: the president of course is referring to the deputy attorney general rosenstein who in a two-page memo laid out thet strongest case of why call me needed to be fired. now he wants an investigation by the special counsel to investigate why the president fired jim comey and whether or not this was the right thing to do. this is insanity. the special counsel now has 13 attorneys, and on top of that, including hillary clinton attorney and other attorneys who donated to obama and clinton. the destroy trump media are jumping all over this. they are of course hoping it will lead to president trump's
downfallpr. let me remind you, "the washington post," abc news, "the new york times,"st cnn, nb, they have all gotten wrong on this issue. they all at this point say the american public should have zero credibility.ey we have to take the latest so-called smoking gun report coming out late night every night with a grain of salt. last night attorney general rosenstein issued a statement about trusting the stories about coming out of the fake news media.a he said this. the department of justice has a
long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations. i don't trust any of them at this point.th on top of that, james, he testified last week the media has been so dead wrong when it comes to stories about russia. by the way, while all that is alarming, it proves everything we have been saying on this program. this deep state, fourth branch of government as were calling it doesn't care about getting the truth. and of course the media, they are the willing accomplices. their goal is the exact opposite here. as they are selectively leaking information, intelligence information that is meant to damage in this case the president of the united states of america, which is exactly what we been seeing now almost on a nightly oe basis. here's a perfect example. james, he told president trump he wasn't under investigation. somehow that's the only one thing that never got leaked to t'the press. why? the reason should be l obvious. what's worse is the growing targets for the deep state.
they've been successful and totally slowing down the president's agenda. congresses agenda. so far they've not been able to stop him, which means that deep state is going after anyone who is close to the president. including his family, whiteen house advisors, and even people in the media. the deep state plans to create as much collateral damage as possible, targeting everyone and everyone from the president straightas on down. so what we're seeing now is this unelected fourth branch of government looking for retribution, overturning a duly elected election. and they're not going to stop until this president has either stopped or thrown out of office. here's the problem, where was leaking this information to the media, they need to be out arrested, they need to be prosecuted. everyone needs to be put in jail. why hasn't every obama holdover been fired? why have the leakers not been discovered and rested at this
point? these people have now become ak clear and present danger to this country and to you. and the things you care about deeply. because these people now have done this to the country, that raises a lot of questions. we have the left and their vicious and vile daily hatred that is now tearing this country aparttr and creating a climate where what we saw last week isnt now in some ways even encouraged by some. and that show of unity, i'm not falling for it even for a moment. at the congressional baseball game, it was nothing more than an illusion. this week left wing assassination attempt on republican lawmakers is a culmination on rage, hatred towards the president and republicans. i'm not saying anybody but this individual is responsible, but this atmosphere is so unhealthy and those that are unhealthy,
are they susceptible to potential influence of daily lies, misinformation, conspiracy theories. remember the stunning video from this week. [gunshots] [bleep] >> do we know where he's at? >> after everything we have seen, can anybody say that they are surprised that a left wing lunatic went on a shooting rampage? just this week, opening night performance of shakespeare and julius caesar, and a donald trump look like getting murdered. in this most tragic example, that we would warn you about before putting up on the screen, kathy griffin cnn host posing
like an ices fighter with a fake and bloodied severed headnd of president trump. as just a few examples of this left-wing vitriol. remember back in january, madonna literally threatening and fantasizing about blowing up white house. >> yes, i'm angry. yes, i am outraged. yes, i have thought an awful lot about blowing up the white house. >> thought a lot about blowing upfu the white house. leftist, hollywood liberals, they're not alone and viciously attacking the president. you've got the destroy trump media, now for 11 months almost they have done the exact same thing if not a lot worse. take a look at what so-called news looks like. it's real fake news. take a look. >> i understand where you're coming from, i understand why you like trump, but the man is lying to y you. >> trumps critics, those who are
worried about this president and this white>> house, saw a live special television event brought to you by narcissism, thin-skinneded chaos and deeply personal grievances. >> this was a white lash against a changing country, it was a white lash against a in part. and that's the part where the pain comes. >> when you say today, america first, it's not just a racial. this is a very sad night for the country. you can't polish this. >> what if youou call them a fae president? >> he's there with his wife, whole family, the romanoff's might be a part of the story. and he has his daughter ivanka. it's like a traveling royal romanoff family. >> you cannot defend what the president of the united states
>> now we are supposed to believe all of these media folks and democrats preaching unity but yet they have done nothing but smear, slander, besmirch this president for months in case you forgot. take a look. >> this executive order. was mean-spirited and un-american. >> republican leaders and president trump don't give a [bleep] about the people they're trying to hurt. >> i will fight every day until he is impeached. impeached 45. impeached 45. >> this is a bunch of scumbags. that's what they are. >> those are very strong words. >> we've seen nothing that we can work, but i can work with president bush on. i'm trying really hard to find something positive.
this morning, he had three tweets. i was thinking more of a creature that stopped the night that these things just came out and i like a vampire. tweeting these things. for now, it spreads in the morning. >> after wednesday's left-wing assassination attempt, "the huffington post" had to take down an article calling for the president's execution. take a look at the headline we showed you last night. impeachment is no longer enough. donald trump must face justice. here's a sub headline. impeachment, removal from office are only the first steps for america to be redeemed. a donald trump must be prosecuted for treason and convicted in a court of law, executed. beyond disturbing. but there are plenty of otherf examples. earlier this week, liberal actot and activist, called on his followers to sign a petition to demand nbc news stop hiring conservatives for on-air positions. we've seen people like robert
de niro, mickey rourke and marilyn manson advocating for violence against this president. and outside of hollywood, he of groups like black lives matter. what we want, dead cops, when do we want them, now. pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon. hillary clinton supported that group. president obama met with them in the white house. they've been spewing hate for years. and where was their criticism of kathy griffin and her ices pose? take a look at black lives matter. >> pigs in a blanket, fry like bacon. >> pigs in a blanket, fry like bacon. >> what we want? dead cops. >> also we have all seen the out of control anger and rage that is springing up all over college campuses where showing you video, berkeley, california, earlier this year, protesters starting a riot. because a conservative was going to speak at a university, home
of this free speech movement. while all these examples of hatred are shocking and alarming, they're not new. the roots of the left's rage go back decades if not further. in fact, it is part of the movement's dna.a. groups like the mayday labor movement, the weather underground, led by barack obama's pals, bill ayres and bernadine dorn. the occupy wall street movement all started with subscribe to radical left-wing hate filled ideology advocating for using violence to their advantage and their political objectives. so while the democrats and the left are putting their hate on pause for 24 hours last night, not even 24 hours. you can bet they're only getting started when it comes to the president, conservatives, republicans in this country. here with reaction, the author of the brand-new book "understanding trump" fox news former speaker of the house and fox news contributor
newt gingrich. there's been a long history. we can argue we are not dueling in this country. and we went through the 60s and this period of horrible assassinations from martin luther king jr. and robert f kennedy,, malcolm x, kent state and all these other cases. in my lifetime there's never been anything like this. they will not accept this president as duly elected. and i don't think it stops at all. your thoughts. >> first of all, what you did was just the overpowering. that is a lot of material, and it's a lot of vivid proof where people are looking at the actual film. you're not making anything up. you're sharing with them the film. so i do think that at a minimum, this resembles the late 60s, early 70s, the end of the vietnam war. the counterculture, the free speech movement all the things
thatth came together to create turmoil not period. i think t this is different. i think the frenzy on the left is deeper and more rapid than it was. i think there is strength in hollywood and the newsroom and campuses is bigger than it was. it's a real fight. posting at the very beginning when you were describing "the washington post" story, it may be that the deputy attorney general now has a new assignment which is to create a special counsel to look into leaks from the special counsel. it's illegal to be leaking. i'm just saying if you look at -- i don't understand what rosenstein's memo was supposed to tell us. is he saying thatll "the washington post" lied? but it's not true, so how does he know it? does he say well, they might be true but don't pay attention to them? i didn't find his enlightening. "washington post"rt once again s an unnamed source who makes a series of allegations which may be true.
it doesn't help us any to have page one making allegation, and bureaucrats of justice piously explain they can't tell you whether or not it was probably leaked from one of them. it's true. i think if he's serious about stopping leaks, maybe not this first round, but by the time we have three or four leaks, which we will get from a special counsel's office, i think they will be forced to create a new special counsel to look into the special counsel's office. >> think about what the president tweeted out today. i'm being investigated for firing the fbi director by the man who told me to fire the fbi director integrate specificity and detail and is strongly worded to a half page statement. that's insanity to me. >> i don't blame trump for being -- it is insanity. i don't blame trump for being frustrated, though i think it be better off to shift gears and go to a much more positive series
of tweets because they're doing so many good things nobody learning about, it feels like the left is effectively getting him sucked into this fight were all the talk about everyday is junk. despite all that, by the way, trump today still was at 41% approval despite an unending barrage of six months allies and years of innuendo. >> what you make of this assassination attempt targeting republicans this week? i think you said it right. first of all, when you have an individual act like that, it's the responsibility of the individual. he was guilty. i think that we should focus on him. the background noise affect is scary. the number of people willing, goes all the way back to your showing madonna. i had forgotten. i thought she said she dreamed of bombing the white house. shaklee talks about how she thought about blowing up the
white house, which normally would be considered a crime. we weree very strict about protecting the presidency no matter who you are. imagine in 2010 with the tea party movement, that a tea party movement person had talked about blowing up the white house with barack obama and it. the national media would've gone crazy. >> we've got to take a break. there is one metric out. over 12,000 times at least on twitter talking about assassinating our president. will have much more with the former speaker of the house of newt gingrich right after the break and later tonight. >> what would change the world as if russia was interfering in the election and they weren't doing it on their own and he was in on it. >> after months and months and months, breathlessly, endlessly pushing a black helicopter tinfoil hat conspiracy theories, the queen of propaganda media, rachel maddow saying it's possible the trump campaign did not collude with russia.
i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, i accept i take easier trails than i used to. a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but no matter what path i take, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding than warfarin.
eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis.
i want to go through this list. loretta lynch it meets on the tarmac with bill clinton. loretta lynch then tells james, let's not call it an investigation, it's only a little matter. that summer carter and john solomon, with a blockbuster report that james comey confronts lynch that she was never planning under any circumstances to indict hilary no matter what the evidence said. where's the investigation into her? >> what is amazing to me about the republican passivity here is that senator feinstein of the ranking democrat in the intelligence committee said last week after, his testimony really have to look into what is going on with loretta lynch and with president obama. i was waiting for one of the two intelligence chairman to open a new investigation on exactly
what loretta lynch said to james, a. whether she had briefed president obama. i don't understand the republicans allowing the left to defineresi what these investigas are about particularly when you are senator feinstein, the ranking democrat, very respected senior democrat from california who is saying look, this is so weird. we have to look into it. fine. let's look into it. >> let me ask this. so you've got rosenstein we talked about earlier, recommends the firing of james comey, now going to investigate the obstruction of the president fired james coming. then we have mueller, hiring hillary clinton's attorney on the clinton foundation to deny freedom of information act request. and you got all these other people, 13 high-powered attorneys, one guy i think argued before the supreme court 100 times, and so many of them donated to clinton and obama. why do i think the deck isis stacked?ke
should mueller and rosenstein recuse themselves? to me, absolutely yes. and especially all of their connections to james comey. who linked to the special counsel. >> first of all, under the justice department's own rules, mueller has a legal obligation to recuse himself with anything involving jim comey. which makes you wonder why would they have. the guy who was close friends to investigate a situation which inevitably involves this whole thing stinks. jim comey. in addition, i think you have to look at this and recognize, they're going to get somebody, i don't think they're going to get the president, but they're going to get somebody. and they're going to get them for something. and they are probably going to e go to jail because they are to many lawyers who are high-powered go home without a scalp. this is like watching an old fashion western movies. this is an indian hunting party. there are looking for a couple of scalps and they're not going some.home until they get
>> why hasn't the president gotten rid of ---- and i talk to people at the white house just this week, a number of people confirmed there are a ton of obama holdovers. we haven't gotten to the leakers, we haven't gotten to the people who do this day in and day out. why not? >> let me say even though i wrote a book called understanding trump, i don't understand. >> [laughs] i don't mean to laugh. that's sad. >> i'm serious. think about it. this is so obvious. you assign one person, you give them the list, they don't get to go home until they finished firing all of them. it's not that heavy. you have to work through all of it et cetera. this has been a puzzle all through the government. the number of bad decisions being made in the departments because you still have obama holdovers making them is really very discouraging.
the president has done a lot of great things on a very big level, l but all this underlines they are not very good at cleaning it up. >> mr. speaker, you have your new book out. it's on amazon.com. i think it's newt gingrich.org for your travel schedule. you give speeches and signing books. >> newt gingrich productions. >> thank you, sir. up next on is busy breaking newsnight this friday night. >> just last week, reuters reported on 18 new previously undisclosed contact between the trump campaign a russian government officials. >> the biggest tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists in the country, the biggest of all, rachel maddow now backtracking on pushing the trump russian collusion lie? what she's been doing for months and months, nowck you won't believe what she's saying. will explain and get reaction. michelle malkin a later tonight, michael myers, weighing in on the deep state trying to take
down the president. also, pat buchanan on a long history of left is hatred and violence as we continue. like this igloo 48 quart cooler for under $20. new balance 608 trainers for under $50. plus, free catch and release ponds and giveaways this weekend. is america's number-one you kmotorcycle insurer. yeah, she does purr! best bike i ever owned! no, you're never alone, because our claims reps are available 24/7. we even cover accessories and custom parts. we diget an early start! took the kids to soccer practice. you want me to jump that cactus? all right. aah!
>> live from america's news headquarters. the search continues for seven missing sailors following a collision between a navy destroyer and a merchant ship off the coast of japan. four sailors were injured and flown to a navy hospital in japan, including the ship's captain who just took a man last month. the u.s. fitzgerald suffered damage to a starboard side and flooding in three compartments. the jury of the sexual assault trial of bill cosby resumes to liberation saturday morning. the jury deliberated for a fifth day friday and again asked for a rereading of testimony. the judge turned down a defense request for mistrial for seventh time. and the los angeles office said
actress carrie fisher died from sleep apnea as well as accommodation of other factors. an exact cause of death cannot pinpoint it. she died last december. i'm patti ann browne. >> a fox news alert. more breaking news tonight. fox news has confirmed a report from "the daily caller" that the left-wing gunman who targeted republicans earlier this week in fact had a list containing g.o.p. congressman thata was found. also tonight, for months, the person that has been leading the destroyed trump tinfoil hat black helicopter conspiracy theories, rachel maddow would fan the flames of the trump russia collusion narrative. watch this. >> just last week, reuters reported on 18 new previously between thet ntacts trump campaign and russian government officials. u.s. investigators including the fbi are looking into a russian citizen in conjunction with one of the incidents on the trump campaign last year.
maybe he is not as charitable as he says or maybe is not really under audit. all of those little things might be true. that would be interesting tohe know. i don't know that that would change the world that much but what would change the world as if russia was interfering with the election, and they weren't doing it on their own. and he was in on it. the fbi director being fired by the president to try to change or stop an fbi investigation into the president's campaign and his top staffers, that is a bigaf deal. >> big deal. not true. in a new interview with "rolling stone" magazine, maddow seems to be backtracking., when asked if you think this quote possible the campaign had no knowledge of russian hacking, shes replied "i absolutely believe it's possible. russia clearly did this attack and there's lots of circumstantial evidence that points out lots oflo unexplained and surreptitious contact between from people and russian people at the time that was
happening. circumstantial evidence is circumstantial evidence. this is a serious thing that is to be e chased down to the end." here with reaction, the coast the ninth post, even chris matthews after comey testified said it's dead. this has gone on for nearly 11 months. what's your reaction to what's being said now after all that bad reporting? >> i think rachel maddow must be ronald wrapped because the tinfoil hack consumption there is through the roof. it's not going to convince conspiracy theorists like her to stop. her number one goal is to bash and obstruct the trump administration. it has been from day one. and they're going to beat that horse until they can't do it anymore. i think it's especially ironic that this interview she gave that you quoted from his in
"rollingin stone" magazine which apparently is billing her on a it's front cover as the most trusted name in news. could there be a bigger joke? the fake news purveyor. we talked about this so many times, you and i are always transparent about what our biases are, what our ideology is, what our perspective is. we put it all on the table, and we asked people to do their own homework and verify their own facts. anybody can commit journalism. there are double standards off the left and rolling stone. who was founded by one of the democrats biggest donors. they are a propaganda machine for the liberals just as rachel maddow is. >> the thing is they've done this for months and months. what i'm having a hard time coming to grips with here, we have pointed out every democrat,
mark warner and joe mansion and diane feinstein and then clapper and comey and brennan and rogers and everybody, no evidence of collusion. but yet they still keep going with the innuendo. and it's on for months and months and months. had they get away with basically lying? that's what it is to their audience and creating this breathless hysteria that may be impeachment is around the corner. we got them tonight. and that we got them the next night and we got them the next night. never a retraction, never honesty. >> you would think that maybe what she told rolling stone is something that she should use as a preface in front of every show. but no. it is an illusion factory, it is an echo chamber, and donald trump doesn't have to just deal with the previous swamp that exists. he has to deal with these festering fever swamps and that
this conspiracy machine, and people are sick and tired of it. there's so much real news that's going on, and it's an insult and slap in the face by rolling stone. by the way, just this week, had to settle a $1.6 million lawsuit by those poor guys at the fraternity at university of virginia. over what? fake news allegations. this is their coin. >> they pay all the money, now they pick their favorite left-wing tinfoil hat conspiracy black helicopter conspiracy pushing host toes say the most trusted name in news. we are fair and balanced here? that's right. >> we are reporting things nobody else does. we're looking at loretta lynch, hillary clinton, the deep state, things that other people are no not. i know we will over time as usual be proven to be right. michelle malkin, thanks so much for being with us.
coming up, talking about the deep state. it's out to get the trump administration. how bad is it? how dangerous is it? mike myers on the left, mike shop on the right will react and also more breaking news tonight. >> half of twitter would explode and applause and excitement paired this is the world we live in now. >> kellyanne conway later today talking about just how vicious and viable left in this country has become. patricks j buchanan joins us wih a history lesson on the left and their anger in a column detailing this leftist hatred. not in more as hannity continues his busy friday night
looking sharp len. who's the lucky lady? i'm going to the bank, to discuss a mortgage. ugh, see, you need a loan, you put on a suit, you go crawling to the bank. this is how i dress to get a mortgage. i just go to lendingtree. i calculate how much home i can afford. i get multiple offers to compare side by side. and the best part is... the banks come crawling to me. everything you need to get a better mortgage. clothing optional. lendingtree, when banks compete, you win. okay! ...awkward.
>> president trump is called a special counsel on the russian investigation, saying that is a witch hunt. robert mueller remains special counsel despite he and his team having massive conflicts of interest like mueller's close relationship with former fbi director james comey, and the fact that three members of his team donated to democrats and by the way, they even hired one of hillary clinton's lawyers. we've been saying on this program is time for him to recuse himself. joining us now with reaction from the american conservative union, and from the new york civil rights coalition of mike myers. we've been friends a long time. you call yourself a liberal. you're not a liberal. >> i am a liberal. >> you're not a liberal. here not.
>> and a classical liberal who believes in justice through process, fairness, and the elected president of the united states. the people decided the election. the resistance movement has organized now to make sure he goes out by any means necessary. this is the resistance movement, and what shocks me is that the government because we have so far failed to drain the swamp, and to the swamp is fighting back, the government itself now is leaking. the government itself is now becoming the surveillance state. liberals like me used to be opposed to the surveillance state. we used to believe in privacy and individual rights. we used to believe in the aclu. the aclu is on the side of the trump resistance movement. they are not any longer nonpartisan. >> and not caring about civil liberties. not caring about the fourth amendment protections that we
have against unreasonable searches. >> if they cared, they would've said something by now. they are raising millions of dollars opposed toto trump. the trump resistanceth movement. that's their literature not my rhetoric. >> just a few like mike myers. and alan curse ritz. we didn't get along a lot over the years, but he's been so>> dd on factually, legally accurate in all of this. where are the rest of liberals like mike? >> remember, when you take on the swamp, when you take on the elitists, when you take o on all the people that have been running things for decades, they fight back. donald trump is a victim of that, even republican lawyers are afraid to step in where they see these great abuses because they know jim comey is going to play a big role in the d.c. bar. what you have is a lot of conflicted people and the fact is, as you w know, we have seen
zero evidence ofee any collusion and people like alan dershowitz have made it very clear and the republican lawyers i have talked to served president bush said there's no obstruction of justice there. >> but that side is not conflicted. we are at war and the civil rights movement, we used to have a saying. it is time to choose which side are you on. so we are at war. we have to fight for national identity. we have to fight for our culture. in the 2016 presidential election was our last chance to save the nation, our last chance to save the culture, and therefore we cannot be conflicted. we've got to fight back. >> that's right. the other thing, the department of justice need to put accounts on hillary clinton because where the trump investigation is going is no evidence of collusion, they're going to gogo to an appropriate contact, but they're going to call an appropriate between doj and fbi and the white house. that's affecting what we had was loretta lynch and president obama, hillary clinton and the other people and they
need to put a cancel on that immediately. let's get on offense and find out where the real crimes occurred. >> it's time to fire some people in this swamp. the nerve of them now. all of a sudden, they want trump's taxes because he won't release them. that becomes the agenda of the special counsel? are they nuts? >> well said. thank you both. as we continue this breaking friday news edition of hannity. >> look at twitter. if i were shot and killed tomorrow, half of twitter would explode in applause and excitement. this of the world we live in no now. >> kellyanne conway explaining just how vicious a left-wing hate has become in the country. patrick j buchanan joins us with a history of left-wing hate. that's next. want someone that mt easy to find what i want. booking.com gets it. and with their price match, i know i'm getting the best price every time.

>> if i were shot and killed tomorrow, twitter would explode in applause and excitement. this is the world we live inerb now. it'sl terrible because again, it's one thing to say i disagree with you on health care repeal or on taxes or on your plans for national security. but you can't attack people personally in a way and think that tragedies like this won't happen. >> that was kellyanne conway gegeearlier today describing the
vile language coming from left today. my next guest details a long history of vicious rhetoric and vile behavior coming from the left in america. coming to explain this, author of nixon's white house wars, patrick j buchanan is with us. good to see you. i love your knowledge of history. the nixon white house, the reagan white house, you've been around the block. you've been at the forefront of passionate debate, pat buchanan. you are a pioneer. but have you ever seen it this bad as he looked through that history? >> no, i have not. it has been vile, the attacks on the president of the united states. they've been unrivaled. there were bad times back in the 1960s, richard nixon coming down for his inaugural and you've got people yelling at the end of is going to win. cheering on communist killers of american troops in vietnam. this is almost likelele that, bt
